    I have been working at Twitch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been an Engineering Manager at Twitch for over 2 years. I’ve had a long career and I can now say that this is one of the most enjoyable work experiences I have ever had. Why?

    The people are passionate about the product, focusing on success of both creators and viewers.

    People have the best intentions here, collaborate and pitch in across teams to get stuff done and don’t just think about what’s in it for me. I’ve seen the land grab type of org, this is not that way.

    The hiring process is rigorous. If you get a job here you are smart and capable.

    The company has been growing incredibly fast and this has opened up opportunities for those who want to grow into new, bigger roles. I’ve promoted multiple devs to SDE II and SDE III and had an SDE become an SDM.

    It’s fun working with cool, nice people on a fun product. And yes, the new office is amazing and the food is off the charts.

    Cons

    Need more cross org shared dev processes and support.

    It’s easy to gain weight.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working to bring more cross org alignment. Solicit input from directors and managers for company wide process changes.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Twitch (San Francisco, CA (US)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Sent in a resume to their job portal and heard back four days later from a recruiter who assigned me a coding challenge -- program a spellchecker in any language of your choice and submit it within 24-36 hours. Submitted that and was then invited for a Skype phone screen with an engineering manager.

    Interestingly, my interviewer said he had not seen the coding challenge I submitted (in Python) and started the interview with several qualitative JavaScript questions. With my main interest on the back end and having not developed on front end for a month, fumbled a bit. After that, one live coding question over Stypi, which I completed in Python, standard difficulty level. Interview ended with him answering my questions about Twitch, where I focused on the streaming process. He answered my questions on a high level, then revealed that I was being considered for a role different than what I had submitted my resume to (Tools Engineer vs Software Engineer). The entire call lasted about 40 minutes.

    The next day I received an email stating they would not move forward with my application. I wish Twitch had communicated before the Skype call that I was being considered for a role different from what I had applied for, but oh well. Other than that, correspondence with Twitch recruiters were prompt and professional, which I appreciate.
